I'm on the market for a digital camera, one that can take high res pics (hopefully around 6 megapixels I think was what the guy said).
I need a camera for me, plus a good one will allow me to get pics the graphic artist/designer can use in the business plan.

That is the site I used to help me select the camera that is best for me.

Subject: We bought a Fuji FinePix E550
The E550 uses the same CCD as the Pro-grade S2. It interpolates at 12M, and shoots native at 6MP.

At any rate, it ended up being about $400, IIRC. Didn't we get it before you left? With a 1G xD card, it'll shoot 20 minutes of video or 167 12MP images. I think it fits something like 500 at 6MP.

Problems with it:
* no autofocus illuminator, so autofocus has problems in dark situations.
* The compression is kinda high on 6MP and lower images, although I haven't been able to tell in the prints from it.

Great things:
* FAST! Power to shooting (without flash) is about 1.5 seconds.
* Disk-length movies. We shot a movie of Lance's first haircut - about 10 minutes of video. We've taken longer movies since.
* Super-high resolution
